Newsletter Testimonials

What Readers are Saying About Humor at Work

“The best weekly newsletter ever!” Humor at Work is always an inspiring fun read and is  definitely #1 among my weekly e-zines.”  Jennifer Morin, Environmental Analyst

“Why I love Mike’s “Humor at Work” emails:

  1. They’re always the same length — short, so I know I’m not going to be drawn into a half-hour intense reading assignment.
  2. There is always something of value — some relevant and useful piece of advice.
  3. And of course, there is always something to make me at least chuckle, and sometimes LoL.”

Waldo Berg

“I really like your newsletter – style, format, content, originality, interest – aces on all fronts!  You do an awesome job on it and it’s appreciated.” Patricia Katz, www.PatKatz.com

“Can I be your biggest fan?  I confess that of all of the emails I get in a week (and it’s hundreds) I always stop what I’m doing and read your e-newsletter as soon as it arrives!”  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!”  Marilyn Benninger, CGA

“I look forward to my weekly e-zine – great ideas!  I keep every one of them in a folder for future reference.”  Laurie Trelenberg, Team Lead, Alberta School Employee Benefit Plan

“I attended two of your workshops as part of corporate wide customer service training last year. I left the workshops feeling inspired and motivated to integrate your tips and suggestions into my work. But, as often happens, the everyday rush and stress can be a barrier to making the small changes that seemed so easy when I thought of them during the workshops. Your e-newsletter acts as not only a weekly refresher, but as a moment of accountability to all those ideas and goals developed through your workshops. And, equally important the stories and facts add some very important giggle to my Wednesdays!”  Kate van Fraassen, Development Planner, Town of Canmore

“I have been using your website and Wednesday emails as a point of topic with my employees and supervisors for about the last two months. While it took some getting used to, the supervisors now wait to see what “nugget” I have for them each week, directly pulled from your mailing.  Three of my supervisors have even signed up for your mailings to use in their interactions with their employees.”  Derrick Marple, Paramedic, EMSI, Director of Operations Integrity Ambulance Service

“LOVE your e-zine newsletter!  I look forward to receiving it each week and to see what pithy pointers you may be sharing.  I do a newsletter for our agency and frequently borrow (with your permission, of course) some of your articles. Please keep it coming!  Thanks!”   Dona Fuerst, Training Manager, WA State Division of Vocational Rehabilitation
